Alarm going off randomly - E70 X5
« on: July 12, 2018, 05:08:23 PM »
Hi all,

I have a very annoying issue that my alarm randomly keeps going off randomly, at night, whilst driving etc etc on my E70 X5 (58 plate)  :blink:

I was wondering if anyone had experienced this and what would be the best solution?

Thanks in advance!

My X3 used to go off randomly, coded out tilt sensor, then internal sensors still no good,
Disconnected the plug from the bonnet alarm switch, never did it again.
As for going off whilst driving, ne rear had that as it wouldn't be armed 😳
